Hi.

Welcome to John's Hot Dog Blog. I eat hot dogs and write about them.

Corbett's Burgers and Soda Bar

Corbett's Burgers and Soda Bar

Today I had a great chance to try out two specialty dogs from Corbett's Burgers & Soda Bar located in Cary, North Carolina.  Corbett's is a fantastic eatery hidden away, nestled in the corner of a shopping center.  If you didn't know it was there, you might over look it.

The menu at Corbett's offers a decent selection of specialty dogs and other classic soda shop fare like milkshake's and burgers.  They are also known for their wide variety of gourmet sodas. This, however, is a blog about Hot Dogs!  On with the dogs...

Today I tried the "Spicy Dog" and the "Southern Dog" to set the bar.

First off, the Spicy Dog:
The combination of flavorful heat from the jalapenos and hot sauce with the sweet coolness of the slaw are enough to make any hot dog fan's mouth water. 
1) The Bun: Steamed, Delicious and Soft
2) The Dog: Nathan's all beef cooked perfectly
3) The Toppings: Jalapenos, Ghostpepper Jack Cheese, Cole Slaw, SODALICIOUS hot sauce

9 dogs out of 10!


Next up, the Southern Dog!

This was the perfect dog to cool down after that sweet heat prior.  For those not from the south, this classic hot dog configuration includes a Red Dog with Mustard, Chili, Onion, and Slaw.  That's exactly what you'll find on the "Southern Dog" at Corbett's Burgers and Soda Bar.  This dog deployment is hard to mess up and is a tried and true favorite.  The secret here is having the perfect balance of mustard, chili, and onion, which Corbett's does well, but not perfect.  The slaw was just a tad overwhelming with only slight hints of mustard zing making it through to the palate.  If there was a better topping balance, the Southern Dog would have definitely scored higher!
1) The Bun: Steamed, Delicious and Soft
2) The Dog: Red Dog with a snap
3) The Toppings: Mustard, Chili, Onion, Slaw

6 dogs out of 10!


In closing, both dogs I ate were delicious and everyone should head out to Corbett's to give their hot dogs a try.  I will definitely go back to sample the other hot dog options!
